My 41 year old daughter died 5 years ago today and I still miss her. She lived nearby and we had a close relationship. She was separated from her husband and had a son. He was 17 at the time, now 22 and in college. I have missed her a great deal but have managed to get on with my life and try my best to help her son. He basically lost his family. Today I am allowing myself to wallow in grief and remembrances. For years I could hardly look at her picture or write much about her because the hurt was deep. Today I am going to try to write down some of the important things leading up to that dreadful day. After this long of a time facts are fading so I want to write down as much as I can recall and put them with her letters and papers. Maybe I will never look at them again or maybe on some other anniversary I might read it. Maybe some day her son will be interested.
For all you newly grieving people know that in time your grief lessens but you never forget your loved one. You will learn to smile again.
